Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for Windsor and Essex County.
Snow began Sunday morning and will continue into Monday morning.
For areas south of a line from Sarnia towards Hamilton, total snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm are likely, with the highest amounts near the Great Lakes. North of this line from Huron – Perth towards the Greater Toronto Area, total amounts will likely be near 15 cm.
Over all regions, winds will strengthen and become gusty this afternoon and evening, reducing visibilities to 0.5 km or less in blowing snow. The combination of snow and blowing snow will make for hazardous travelling conditions. These persistent winds will generate wind chill values of near minus 25 tonight and into Monday.
The worst conditions are generally expected tonight.
